A Girl Like You
Author: Gemma Burgess
Publication Date: January 6th 2011
"I've discovered the secret to successful singledom. I'm acting like a man. And it's working."
After breaking up with her boyfriend of, well, forever, Abigail Wood must learn how to be single from scratch. Her dating skills are abysmal, and she ricochets from disaster to disaster - until Robert, one of London's most notorious lotharios, agrees to coach her. With his advice, she learns to navigate the bastard-infested waters of the bar scene, and practices the art of being bulletproof. The new Abigail is cocky, calm, composed..but what happens when she meets her match?
I loved, I mean LOVED A Girl Like You. I was a huge fan of chick lit a couple of years ago, but since been bored with it. Occasionally I will read one here or there and I am so glad I do because I get to find gems like these.
I loved the dialogue, so witty. I laughed so much while reading A Girl Like You. I adore Gemma Burgess's writing, her sense of humor is off the chart. It was predictable but told in a more exciting way for me. No insta-love here, it's all done nice and slow. I read this in one afternoon, and that is hard for me to do now, unless it's freaking awesome.
Abigail and Robert's group of friends are the best. A fun group of people, what's not to like.
Read it, seriously. Definitely one of my favorites this year.
